Design & Display
Acer continued its minimalist design aesthetic with Acer Swift 3. It looks just as sleek as ever. The Lid houses a matte-silver finish with polished reflective Acer logo on the back which is about as flashy as the laptop gets, and no wonder for some – that’s exactly what they’re looking for. Moving to the display, it has a 14-inches (1920×1080) FHD panel. The bezels are quite minimal. It weighs only 1.17kg which is relatively thinner than other laptops in this budget.
Performance and memory
In terms of performance, the laptop houses the latest AMD Ryzen 7- 4700U Processor with up to 4.1GHz clock speed. It is an octa-core processor with enough power to handle challenging tasks with ease. The Swift 3 handles multimedia content creation pretty well for a system with 8GB Onboard LPDDR4 Memory RAM. In terms of storage, users get 256GB SSD.
Battery and Connectivity
The laptop has a large 3 Cell Li-Ion battery. Thanks to the onboard power-efficient CPU, it should easily last up to 11.5 hours. As for ports, Acer loaded up Swift 3 with 1 - USB Type-C port USB 3. 2 Gen 2 (up to 10 Gbps) DisplayPort over USB Type-C and USB Charging, 1- USB 3. 2 Gen 1 port (featuring power-off charging), 1 - USB 2. 0 port and 1 - HDMI port.
